In a tweet for Pride Month, YouTuber Tana Mongeau has come out as “pansexual as hell.” Mongeau has made many of her relationships, with both men and women, public, but she recently clarified how she identifies and how she views love.
“It’s also pride month and i haven’t had the chance to go hard for my lgbtqia+ babies but i be about pansexual as hell + i stand for u all,” she wrote on June 5.
Mongeau also posted a photo of herself and Noah Cyrus holding hands with a lengthy caption to explain her sexuality further. “I never thought i’d be brave enough to publicly share my sexuality in the way i do now,” she begins to wrote. “I hate people telling me i’m straight or discrediting my relationship if i’m with a girl.. but i’m proud to be not only a member but an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community and i’m proud to say i will live my life based on loving people not for their gender but their soul.”
“Some people call that pansexuality, everyone calls me bi, i personally don’t find a need to label it all,” she continued. But to Mongeau, love and sexuality is “genderless.” She went on to reflect on how lucky she is to have a platform where she can openly speak about her sexuality.
The YouTuber also urged her fans to vote President Donald Trump out of office. “Also fuck our president for his absolute inhumane ideals toward the lgbtqia community and u better be voting his ass out with me,” she wrote. “It hurts my heart to even be posting about pride knowing that the rights of Trans people were just so sickeningly ripped from them. I will use the way that angers me to fight for change.”
She ends the post telling her LGBTQ+ fans she loves them, and they are exactly who they are meant to be.
Most of her relationships have been public and not free of controversy. When she dated Bella Thorne, it was later revealed that Thorne was also dating a rapper named Mod Sun. Also, her non-legally binding wedding to fellow YouTuber Jake Paul was also met with scrutiny and rumors swirled that the entire wedding was fake.
